About

Joshua Davis is an Ohio born artist and illustrator. He currently lives in Ashland, Ohio with his wife and two children.

Josh’s work straddles the worlds of reality and imagination. His work varies from still life, plein-air/landscape, and portraiture to illustration and fan art. He paints in gouache, oil, acrylic, and watercolor. He also uses pencils, colored pencils, and digital tools to complete his artwork.

Joshua takes his inspiration and influence from many sources; The illustrators N.C. Wyeth, Alphonse Mucha, James Gurney, And Frank Frazetta. The contemporary plein-air and urban sketching movement. Comic books and graphic novels. Science fiction and video game concept art.

While working on observational art, Joshua knows that it furthers his ability to illustrate work in a more believable manner.
